I’m not playing Hide and Seek, looking for an unusual place to hide. This is about a Bible, more than 200 years ago, and a very crafty missionary wife.
I’m preparing a story this week about Missionary Adoniram Judson who went to Burma. He worked diligently to translate the Bible. When he had the New Testament done he was incarcerated for this faith. His wife, Ann, was very concerned about the manuscript and what to do with it. First she hid it in the garden. Then she had the brilliant idea of making a pillow to hide it in. The brave and persistent servant of God rested his head at night on the Word!
I love mission stories. I’m inspired and humbled by the brave men and women that through the ages have served the Master. Many have sacrificed their lives so that we and others around the world can have the Word of God.

Adoniram Judson’s wife hid a Bible manuscript in a pillow. That was an unusual place. Where have you hidden the Word? Do as the psalmist!
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
